Earth Day by Tom Allman

I have sailed the eternal ether sea

between stars

I have pushed out to meet the silence

and laughed

I have touched the mote in god’s eye

and wept

Today is my earth day

intrepid explorer

I have returned home

hero’s welcome

I shall lie beneath her green grass

and rest
